Hello to all!!!

I have taken a little break from blogging, well, because… Simply because I had sooo much hands-on work that I needed to do that took time away from blogging world.

Anyhow, here I am! With a lovely client and an interesting order… The girl who ordered these t-shirts is so much in love with her boyfriend. Whom she met at a photography club. They both seem to enjoy taking pictures, (and have the same initials!) so she asked me if I could draw a girl taking a picture of a boy- and a boy taking a photo of a girl.

Enjoy these his’n’hers t-shirts !

Love xx

Herkese selam!

Blog yazmaya ufak bir ara vermistim, cunku… Cunku fiziksel olarak yapmam gereken cok sey vardi! Bunlar icin de klavyeden bir sure uzak kaldim.

Her neyse, cok ilginc bir musteri/siparis ile buradayim… Bu tisortleri siparis eden kiz erkek arkadasina cok asik. Ikisinin de gittigi fotograf klubunde tanistigi erkek arkadasina. Ikisinin de ortak hobisi olan fotografciligi (ve ortak olan isimlerinin bas harflerini) resmetmemi rica etti. Birinde kiz erkegin fotografini cekerken, digerinde ise erkek kizin fotografini cekerken. .

Veeee, size kiz/erkek uyumlu, fotografcilik temali bu tisortleri takdim ediyorum!

Sevgiler,

-Ekin

Keep Calm!

keep calm

 

And yet another “Keep Calm” madness… It has been quite a hit and there are a million derivatives out there, but I wanted to add my own!

There are so many “bitchiness” and short tempers and madness in the world, let me be the one that spreads the moto- chillax, dude.

Have a great week!

Veee, bir baska “Keep Calm” cilginligina benden bir eklenti.. Simdiye kadar milyonlarca turevi olusturuldu, hepsi de tutuldu, ben de kendiminkini ekleyeyim dedim!

O kadar sinir, stres, sirretlik var ki bu aralar, kime baksam, “bir rahatla yahu” diyesim geliyor.  Onlara ve umursamadan yasayanlara gelsin bu seri!

Suppper haftalar!

Join the Dark Side!

I have officially made this weekend a Star Wars weekend… Not that I like the series. The movies, the story, the oozing awesomeness of the delightful lighty blades and the clothes… Gaaah, yes I LOVE Star Wars! I love all the galactic greatness!

Ok, now that I have calmed down, I can show you the t-shirt orders for this past weekend..

Bu haftasonunu resmen Star Wars haftasonu ilan ettim diyebiliriz… Yani, sevdigimden degil. Filmi, hikayeyi, goz alici isik sacan isin kiliclari ve savaslarin muhtesem gorselleri ve kiyafetleri! Aaah, tamam tamam, Star Wars’a bayiliyorum! Tum galaktik muhtesemligin hastasiyim!

Tamam, sakinlestim.:) Sakinlestigime gore, aldigim siparisin muhtesem tisort versiyonunu size gosterebilirim 🙂

First, I almost always do a sketch. A draft, if you will. Unless it’s a design that I have done before (and perfected it by practice) or I am feeling super crazy-risque and just like an artist, hehehe.

–  –  –  –  –  –  –  –  –  –  –

Hemen hemen her zaman bir hazirlik skeci yaparim. Onceden yaptigim  (ve pratik ile kusursuzlastirdigim) bir tasarim ve deli cesareti geldigi zamanlar haric! Sanatci esintisi heralde hehehe.

Woooooooooooooo!…..

And, VOILA! The result was much much closer to the sketch than I expected. Shall I also say better? The shadows on Vader were a bitch to work on fabric, but boy was it worth it!

En-joy!!!

Veeee, Sonuc! Tisortler, skece bekledigimden cok daha benziyordu. Bekledigimden daha da iyiydi dememe gerek var mi bilmem 🙂 Vader’in yuzundeki golge oyunlari kumasa cizerken biraz zorlasa da, kesinlikle degdi!

Afiyet olsun :p

 

 

Puppy Love !

I haven’t been updating posts here, because it’s been nuts busy in here! Well, not to keep you waiting that long, I’ve come to share some goodies that are already shipped and probably on their rightful owners’ chests! 🙂

Here are some puppy- dog illustrations and handmade equin-co t-shirts I’ve been creating lately.

Enjoy!

 

Uzuuundur guncellemedigimi farkettim 🙂 Ama bunun tek nedeni kafami kasiyamamam! Yani, isin asli kasiyacak, oturup yazacak motivasyona sahip olmamam.. Simdilik (!) kisa bir paylasimla yeni yaptigim kopecikli tisortleri paylasacagim. Biraz idare etsin sizi heheheheh

Simdi coktaan balli sahiplerinin uzerlerinde saliniyorlar bu kopecikler.

Puppy love ismini verdigim koleksiyonumdan, kopek cizimleri, ilustrasyonlari ve tabii ki el yapimi equin-co tisortler!

Afiyet olsun 🙂

Steal like an Artist!

Hand lettered in color markers and digitized by equin-co™

A while ago, I saw Artists’ “golden rules” or “habits” if you like.

An awesome book is named “Steal like an Artist” by Austin Kleon. Read more about it here.

Being creative was thought wrong all along!

I simply love love LOVE everything this booklet of ideas has to offer! It’s basically pure artist common sense put to words!

I have awesome quotes to illustrate later on, now! Great source of quotes 🙂

A page from the book, you can come across it often on Pinterest.

 

Have a great and Creative week, everyone !

 

Troop troop, Clone Trooper!

Clone Trooper sketch and lettering by equin-co™

 

Fellow Star-Wars lovers! This post goes to you, as I recently got an order to design a Star-Wars themed t-shirt. I was requested that the design should reflect Star wars theme, but be cute and lovable, as well.

This goes!

From sketch to work- “Clone Troop trooper” designed and hand-painted silver on navy cotton shirt by equin-co designs™

 

And this is the final product!

What about you, guys? I love Star Wars and everything about it, maybe because it symbolizes a fantasy fiction world in my head and doing things you are not able to, here on earth!

I was way too young when the series came up, but thanks to technology, you can look up and download episodes, dvd’s, etc..

I liked how it turned out, and hope you enjoy it as well !
